The JACCC Plaza. designed by Isamu Noguchi, is a composition of architecture, open space and sculpture. The plaza’s symbolism links present to past generations with reference to shared tradition and culture. This design focuses on illustrating and educating the general public of the Japanese heritage and Culture. The intent is to create a functional, logical and artistic design of a sculpture environment connecting Second and San Pedro Street to the building entries of the JACCC, the Noguchi Plaza and the Aratami Theater. Special attention was given to the creation of spaces and subspaces representing different size seating areas, the redefinition of the building entries and the relationship between the spaces and sculptures. Existing design elements and vegetation have been incorporated in this design.

  • AutoCAD Architecture 2010


This is a concept for a mixed-use live-work loft space in downtown Los Angeles. The space is divided into a full story downstairs area and an upstairs loft area. The developer is asking for a 50/50 dedication to live and work spaces. The client, an animator, was asking to have the downstairs area mainly occupied by his living quarters with a reception area and a small conference room by the main entrance of the building. The loft area should be dedicated to work space and should be accessible from the inside and the outside of the building. The client was asking for an open floor plan with lots of windows and light.
